The Trial of the Detectives

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

The Trial of the Detectives from 1877 changed the way the police force was governed, following the story is Gyles Brandreth; join him as he works his way through the dramatic events leading up to the trial and the events that resulted from it. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle couldn’t have written a more Holmes-esque story!

Filming Civilisations

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

We’re out filming for Civilisations this week, we’ve already been to Bristol’s M-Shed and St Mary’s in Henbury. Today we were in a very wet Stroud, we’ve got our new jib out; and thanks to the very talented Jay Carter-Coles, Lewis Garrard and Jonathon Aiken the shots look fantastic.

Miles met with Anne Mactintosh of the Stroud Preservation Trust to talk about the abolition of the slave trade, and showed him the wonderful abolition arch on the corner of Paganhill Estate.

The weather was not on our side all day, but our spirits were not dampened (although everything else was) everyone did a great job and kept each other going. We’re looking forward to getting out there again and making the last parts of the documentary.

Miles Chambers

Civilisations is in full swing now and we’ve confirmed our presenter. We’re delighted to announce the brilliant Miles Chambers, poet laureate for Bristol, will be presenting our episode of Civilisations. His interest in the subject matter, as well as personal connection to the stories we’re investigating should make this a really compelling piece of TV.

Commission accomplished!

We’re pleased to announced our hard work has been rewarded, all the research for Civilisations has resulted in us getting a commission. Our first for InsideOut West, and I’m sure not the last. We’ve got to start the really hard work organising the shoot and locations, and narrowing down our presenter and contributor options.

We’re looking at the lasting impact of the slave trade in our area, a contentious subject full of surprising information and people still passionate about the darkest parts of our rich cultural heritage.

We’re not letting the occasion pass us by, celebrations are in full swing. *pops Champagne*

Season’s Meetings

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

There have been a lot of meetings this week discussing a multitude of different pitches we have up for commission, things are looking promising although nothing is confirmed just yet. There is good news in the office however, after a lot of deliberation there have been some well deserved promotions in the One Tribe TV office, starting in the new year 3 members of the team will be taking on new challenges and pushing their limits. We’re pleased to announce that Kate will become an Assistant Producer, and our two runners Lewis and Cameron will become Junior Researchers. There’s no doubt that they’ll all do great, for now though it’s time to celebrate.
